Gems and Fish is a collage of sea life. Each element has been carefully hand cut from archival natural-history prints. Every fish, willowy eel, and piece of coral has been selected and layered to create this underwater image. The artist has added gems and crystals among the squids and octopuses to make this serene but fantastically busy piece come to life. Collage art created by Clare Boersch Celeste.

A fantasy beyond belief:
A teeming, vibrant coral reef
With giant gemstones peeking through.
All this treasure waits for you.
